March Monday Made It

My Monday Made It project for this month was making some props for pictures. With so many snow days, I find myself struggling to stay motivated when I know I will still be in class when most of you are well into your summer projects.

On one of those snowy day, as I sat at my desk, I noticed the frame I made last summer. It hangs on my wall over the door, where I look at it almost every day. I decided it was a shame to not use it a little more often. While perusing the aisles at Michael's, I found these adorable props to go perfectly with my frame. So although I didn't make them, I did paint them. The kids cannot wait to pose with the props for some new classroom photographs.

My kids are into mustaches and every Thursday is Bowtie Thursday in honor of the principal. The hats and glasses were too cute to pass up, and are less like to spread lice.

We are also going to use the props for a play later this spring. Can't wait!
What did you make for this Monday in March? Don't forget to link up with Tara.


  1. Love the polka dotted tie! I haven't seen anything like these at my Michael's. I guess I better check again. ;)

  2. Yeah, I need to check out Michaels, too!!

  3. These are so fun! I saw a package of props at Hobby Lobby last week and almost bought them, but it looks like these would hold up better and longer! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hello!

    I wanted to let you know about a Pinterest contest that Shaw Contract Group, a global commercial flooring company, is running through April 30. The contest, called Design Schooled, is open to teachers, who by pinning their “dream classroom,” will be entered to win a $25 gift card from

    Link to more information about the contest:

    I would love it if you could help us spread the word! We aren't trying to sell anything - our purpose in holding the contest is to research what teachers see as good classroom design. The results of which, we will apply to our product development and share with those who are designing future classrooms. Hopefully, both the contest and the results will benefit the teachers who follow your blog.

    Thanks so much for your help. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments you may have!
